Jaico’s 366 Gems Series is the first comprehensive collection of the spiritual literature of the whole world presented in accessible form. It is aimed at people who wish to broaden their spiritual outlook, and also at the much larger group who have little or no attachment to a religious community, but seek spiritual wisdom.
Each volume in the series contains major writings of one of the world’s spiritual traditions, presented in the form of an annual cycle of daily readings.
366 Gems from Buddhism includes:
- Teachings of the Buddha, taken from the Pali canon compiled soon after his death
- The Dhammapada, the famous summary of the Buddha’s wisdom
- Stories, poems, sayings and spiritual insights of the Mahayana sages from Tibet, China and India
- Jokes and stories from Zen
